Do you remember the first concert you attended…and how you couldn’t sleep the night before because you were going to see your favorite artist or band? That is a pretty special memory, and if you hear one of their songs now you probably go back to that time in your childhood.
Today we are asking for your help to create this memory for Krystal, she is 13 years old and has been in foster care with CHOICES for almost one year. Krystal is very introverted and has been working closely with her CHOICES caseworker, Jessica, and counselor to come out of her shell. At the advice of her counselor, Krystal made a short list of things she would like to do that would make her happy.
Krystal’s list was short but at the very top she had listed attending a Black Veil Bride’s concert, she even knew they would be in Columbus in October. Together the team discussed the list, but it always went back to the concert and how exciting it would be to see her favorite band…this was really the first time the counselor and Jessica saw enthusiasm from Krystal.
We need your support to help make this wish come true for Krystal, it would be fantastic to grant this wish to a 13 year old foster youth. It is even better, because this may help her express herself, connect to those around her, and build self confidence. Any donations we receive online this week we will put towards Krystal’s concert trip. We estimate it will cost about $125 to provide her with 2 tickets to the show, and we already have county approval for her to go.
Additional questions can be directed to Ashley Schiffer, Development Director at (937) 264-0084 ext. 122 or firstname.lastname@example.org
As a group we are confident we can provide this opportunity for Krystal, and update you following the October 15th concert about her experience and progress!
